Winter floor matt's ?

Who has them? What brands are recommended? I have a 2003 F150 S-Crew Lariat FX4 that I'd like to keep looking as good as it is now. Looking for some good winter matt's that will catch all the salt and crap laid down on Iowa roads.


Thanks!

Jake

Nifty products Extreme or Catchalls (one's rubber the other's carpert) and WeatherTech's two lines are the best I've played with. Husky liner's are decent too, but I find the flap by the door settles down over time and creates issues with how the mat lays.

Highland USA makes a knock off of Weather Techs all weather mats, I have had a set for 6+ years and they are still holding up decent. I also have a Nifty catchall for the back seat. If I were to do it again, I would use Weather Tech's weather liner up front and Nifty Extreme in the rear.

I have WeatherTech floor liners in my pickup. I have been happy with them. The work truck has a vinyl floor which is nice too.

WeatherTech looks like the ticket. But, what is better? Floor liner's or floor matt's? I live in town and don't do a lot of offroading or mudding so I don't know if floor liners are right for me. However, if they would be a better idea, if only in the winter, I'd still check them out.

I run floor liners all year round. They protect the carpet and clean up nicely. I wouldn't use plan floormats anymore IMO.

The complete coverage of the Weathertech floor liners is the best thing I have ever used for our Nebraska winters. The only possible negative I have seen is that they dont have the deep grooves a winter floor mat does, so in heavy snow there is a bit of "floor liner soup" going on and occasionally my pant leg would get dirty since your heel is not raised above the fluid level. But the carpet stays spotless.

I use the Nifty Extreme Catchall. Works great, great fit, and they're cheaper than the weathertechs, and cover the entire floor, door to door.

Weathertechs are probably the best, but if you have someone sitting in the middle seat they're still on the carpet.

My logic was this, they're floor mats, no need to spend a lot of money on them. As long as they perform, who cares what brand, or how perfect they are. Nifty was cheaper, and covered more floor space than the weathertechs. That's what sold me.

I've got 40/20/40.....If that's your case then go with Weathertech's....they fit better than Nifty's and have a better design, they drain out under the door, and clear it well. My Nifty's just trap everything and they require a little bit of attention when cleaning...the Weathertechs can just get religiously wiped and washed

I guess I am going to go with the weathertech's. This just confirms all the good things I have heard about them already. Most people that have them, absolutely love them, from what I gathered.

You'll definitely be happy with them, their only downside is the price.

You get what you pay for though. Enjoy!

Just got my new weathertechs last night. Had them in my previous truck - i think they are the best fit/function for a floorliner.

3 Days ago I picked up a giant coke that didnt fit in the cupholder and on a turn it hit the passenger floor. So they are good to have even if you don't have bad winters - helps if you're accident prone too!
